Reliability of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex

The Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) is a multipurpose facility for scientific experiments. The J-PARC facilities were constructed at the Tokai site of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency. The accelerator complex consists of a 400-MeV Linac, a 3-GeV Rapid-Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) and a 30-GeV Main Ring synchrotron (MR). The RCS delivers a proton beam to the neutron target and MR, and the MR delivers the beams to the neutrino target and the Hadron Experimental Facility. The first operation of the neutron experiments began in December 2008. In January 2009, we achieved the slow beam extraction to the Hadron Experimental Facility at the MR. The regular neutrino experiments to obtain physical data began in January 2010. Following this, the user operation has been continued with some accidental suspensions. These suspensions include the recovery work due to the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011 and the radiation leak incident at the Hadron Experimental Facility.


we summarize the major causes of suspension, and the statistics of the reliability of J-PARC accelerator system is analyzed. Owing to our efforts to achieve higher reliability, the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) has been improved.
